Open Access Articles
De Gruyter is committed to expanding access to first-class knowledge and has fostered a high quality journal program. We offer open access publishing options across our fully open access and hybrid journals covering all disciplines – from science, technology, and medicine to the humanities and social sciences.
De Gruyter is home to around 90 fully open access journals across STEM and HSS disciplines.
For most of our fully open access journals, we apply an article processing charge (APC) to cover the publication costs. The level of the APC depends on the journal and can be checked here. However, as funding might be an obstacle to getting your research out to the world, we offer a waiver policy for each journal.
We also publish a growing number of open access journals that are fully funded resulting in no direct charges for our authors.
Using the Subscribe to Open model De Gruyter is also piloting an alternative transformation path for its humanities and social sciences portfolio that does not require authors to pay article processing charges.
Authors have the option to publish their article under an open access license in almost all of our 340 subscription-based journals. The standard article processing charge for a hybrid open access article is 2,000 Euro (plus VAT if applicable). Please note that corresponding authors from institutions with which we have a transformative agreement, can publishing open access without paying the fee. More information on the eligible institutions and articles can be found here.
